Pennsylvania Republicans want officials to conduct an election audit similar to the one underway in Maricopa County, Arizona examining the 2020 presidential election. In Arizona, the Republican-led Senate has hired auditors to hand count 2.1 million ballots cast in Maricopa County after Joe Biden narrowly won the state.
According to The Hill:
During a visit to Phoenix on Wednesday, three GOP Pennsylvania state lawmakers toured an audit site and met with Arizona Republican lawmakers to discuss issues with the elections, according to Arizona state Rep. Wendy Rogers, WSJ reported.
Philadelphia City Commissioner Al Schmidt (R) said on CNN’s “New Day” on Thursday that the Arizona audit aime to “reach a partisan political conclusion.”
Schmidt added that its “completely reckless” that his state’s GOP lawmakers visited the auditing site, adding that he doesn’t know why legislators want to repeat what’s going in Arizona, citing what’s going on in Arizona is being led by people who don’t have any experience in election administration.
